Default RC sub workshop type 23 wtc

hi guy's
ordered a wtc for the bronco type 23 u-boat from rc sub workshop. there add on facebook page looked really nice. pre drilled holes, waterproof fittings ect. I ordered there wtc kit and a propeller. I would buy the rest as I can. I also bought glue to glue the wtc to the hull. package shows up today. took a little over two weeks. not bad. they mailed it in a pizza box???????? so a piece got broke in shipping, no pre-drilled holes, missing parts. 550 motor and wireing tube. the bulkheads that do not even come close to matching the hull. very disappointed! stay away from this wtc kit. I will just make mine a surface runner now. hate to buy CRAP.

Hi,
Interesting...have you tried contacting them? I am very interested in building this kit as well but have a hard time with shelling out a grand for D & E components.

Could always be worse, I've seen Arkmodel kits & parts shipped in a diaper carton! Been told a while ago to watch out for that outfit to the south of me. Liverpool out of Wuhan does quality work or you can try Ark if you don't mind rolling the dice.

Regarding D&E components, just remember that old saying, "ya gets what ya pays for." Haven't seen any complaints when it comes to David's work.
